William Sydney Porter, better known by his pen name O. Henry, was an American writer. His stories are well known for their twisted and surprised endings, wit, wordplay, and presentation style. All of his stories have characters that appear live while reading. In his days, O. Henry was America’s answer to Guy de Maupassant for his surprise endings, though his stories were considerably more playful with witty narration. Most of his stories are set in the 20th century New York. This book Selected Stories of O. Henry is a collection of some of his best stories, each having a wonderful plot.
